Octagons

What do you think of when you think of octagons? Stop signs right? They are just so frequently associated with octagons, it's hard to think of anything else. Well spellbinders has recently released octagon nestablilities. As part of our Stamping Scrapping design team duties, we were
given a set of the octagon nestabilities to see what we could come up with.

This is what I came up with. The first card used a Magnolia Tilda image (my new favorites). She is colored with copic markers. I stamped the setiment from just rite on one of the smaller octagons and matted it with one of the larger ones. The circular shape works well with the octagons. For my second card, I used the octagons for the gorguss girl and her little chick to sit on. They are both the same size, I just layered them unevenly to try and create more interest. So, what do you think, did I break the stop sign mold?

What a great way to use this shape! I never would have thought of it, but it's perfect to sit this baby on and to use for sentiments. Great job!

Love the cards! You did great using the octagons. I bought this set just because they were different. Now I just need to try them!
